Every code consists of three parts- a number (either 1 or 2 digit) , a symbol and a letter of English alphabet.

The number in the code is the reverse numeric value of the first letter of the word
For example 4=w, 11=p, 13=n.
The symbol is coded with respect to the number of digits in the word.
By comparing the common terms of codes and eliminating we get the following :

The letter in the code is the alphabet two places to left of the last letter of the word.
For example in the word never, r is the last letter hence the last part of the code will be r+2=u

Hence the words and their codes are:

Watched       pot       never      boils 
   4&g           11#w     13$u      25$v

Beggars     cannot     choose
25&v          24%w       24%h       

Familiarity     breeds   contempt
  21+b             25%v         24*w     

Counsel      is        no       command
 24&o      18@v   13@r      24&g
